The Iron Man Wrestling Podcast – Episode 31

Welcome to Episode 31 of the Iron Man Wrestling Podcast. Join The Real Deal, The Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey in another weekly dose of wrestling chat. In this episode:

1. News

This week’s news covers the main event of Hell in a Cell; Kurt Angle; The Dudley Boyz; HBK possibly appearing at the 2017 Royal Rumble; and Dolph Ziggler talking about the possibility of one of the big WWE PPV’s taking place in the UK. You never know, it might happen.

2. Botch To Broadway – Halloween Havoc 1993

As it’s Halloween, what better way to celebrate than by watching through the 1993 Halloween Havoc card. This included British Bulldog taking on Steven Regal, Ric Flair taking on Rick Rude for the Big Gold Belt, and Big Van Vader fighting Cactus Jack in a Texas Death Match.

3. Main Event Jobber – Halloween Havoc 1994

Wrapping up our Halloween segment, we watched the opening and closing matches of Halloween Havoc 1994. That gave us The Honky Tonk Man fighting Johnny B Badd, and Hulk Hogan taking on Ric Flair in a steel cage match. Throw in Mr T, Jimmy Hart, Brother Bruti and Sensual Sherri, and you have a… well, a train-wreck, frankly.

4. Predictions – WWE Hell in a Cell 2016

Well, as it says on the tin. We discuss the card for the 2016 Hell in a Cell PPV. Is having three Hell in a Cell matches too much?

The Iron Man Wrestling Podcast – Episode 30

Episode 30 of the Iron Man Wrestling Podcast kicks off in fine style. The Real Deal, Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey talk about wrestling and stuff. Meanwhile, David Otunga is ignored.

From Goldberg to Frenchie Martin to Daniel Bryan’s depression. It’s all in here!

2. Preview – WWE Hell in a Cell 2016

We have a quick look at the forthcoming Hell in a Cell PPV.

3. Wrestling Memories – UK Rampage 1992

To celebrate our forthcoming visit to Smackdown Live this November, The Real Deal remembers attending UK Rampage 1992 in Birmingham, his first and, to date, only professional wrestling event.

4. Intercontinental Title Tournament – Final

We (finally) reach the end of our quest to find the ultimate Intercontinental Champion.

5. Wrestling Memories – WWF Rebellion 1999

It’s Fallen Angel’s turn to recall his first wrestling event, which he attended at the end of 1999.

6. Overrated/Underrated

This week, and wrapping up the episode, we wonder if Zack Ryder is overrated or underrated? Check us out.

1. WWE No Mercy 2016 review

A review of the latest WWE PPV, No Mercy.

2. Wrestling News

This week’s wrestling news. From Bill Goldberg to TNA to everything in between.

3. Botch To Broadway: WWF Wrestlemania 8

We went back and watched Wrestlemania 8 from April 1992. Was the event a botch, or did it go the full distance?

The Iron Man Wrestling Podcast – Episode 28

Welcome fans, to episode 28 of the Iron Man Wrestling Podcast, and the second in our Debuts series. This week it’s Chris Jericho and his WWF/WWE debut from August 1999. Join us – The Real Deal, The Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey – as we take a trip down memory lane and head back to a more innocent time.

Okay, we might be stretching the truth a little there.

We also have a look at his second match on Smackdown against The Road Dogg. Lots of storylines crisscrossing and blending into one another. It was a good time to be a wrestling fan, don’t you think?

The Iron Man Wrestling Podcast – Episode 27

Welcome to another exciting episode of the Iron Man Wrestling Podcast. Join The Real Deal, The Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey as they wibble on for an hour about the following:

1. News

The possible closure/buyout of TNA; the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic (and it is GLORIOUS!); Raw’s ratings; Ashton Kutcher on Raw; Ryback’s MMA plans.

2. WWE Clash of Champions Recap

Reviewing each match, the card and the overall quality of the event. Let the Battle of the Beards commence!

3. WWE No Mercy Preview

A look at the matches for the next WWE PPV. They’re coming thick and fast now that the brand split has happened! It’s quite exhausting.

4. IC Tournament

We’re almost at the end of our fantasy Intercontinental Title Tournament. The final 8 battle it out for a place in the semi-finals.

5. Fatally Flawed Way – The Four Faces of Foley

The Real Deal sets Old Man Joey and Fallen Angel the task of choosing which of Mick Foley’s personalities would win in a fight.

6. Randoms – Ultimate Factions and Stables

This is not the ultimate faction you were looking for. Fancy a group called The Barbershop Quartet? Brutus Beefcake is the starting point for the creation of a new stable.

The Iron Man Wrestling Podcast – Episode 26

Debuts – Episode 01: Tazz

Welcome to a special episode of The Iron Man Wrestling Podcast. This week we begin an ongoing series that looks at wrestler debuts. Our first episode features the human suplex machine, Tazz.

Tazz debuted in the World Wrestling Federation at the 2000 Royal Rumble. His second saw him take on the Mean Street Posse. Yeah… Suffice to say, in his WWF/WWE run, Tazz never made it much above the middle of the card in his WWF/WWE run.

But he would later go on to form part of the WWE commentary team and carved a niche for himself on Smackdown.

Well, here comes the pain!

The Iron Man Wrestling Podcast – Episode 25

Welcome to the 25th episode of the Iron Man Wrestling Podcast. This week The Fallen Angel and The Real Deal take you on a merry romp through the world of professional wrestling. This week’s topics:

1. News

CM Punk in UFC, Wrestlemania 33, Paige and WWE, Ryback, Vince McMahon, WWE possibly buying TNA, Hulkamania running wild, and Real Deal’s “Glorious” t-shirt. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

2. WWE Backlash 2016

We review the first Smackdown-only PPV since the brand split earlier this week. Was it a success? Well there are less matches than a 2000-era WCW PPV event, so that’s a bonus. We chip in our thoughts and ratings for each match and the event overall.

3. Cruiserweight Classic Finale

The final episode of the Cruiserweight Classic comes under the spotlight. It’s been a great tournament all told, that’s all you really need to know. How will WWE incorporate the Cruiserweights into Monday Night Raw?

4. Main Event Jobber – Undertaker vs Hulk Hogan (Judgement Day 2002)

If you thought the Hulk Hogan/Triple H match from Backlash 2002 was bad, then it’s nothing compared to this one. An eleven minute “classic”. Ahem.

5. Coming Up

Hidden Gems, The Marine films (finally!), and yet more. The Fallen Angel finds a bundle of Sharpies. The WWE Network are launching an animated stories series, and er… Eva Marie. It’s a desperate attempt at clawing our way to the finish, and somehow find even more to talk about. Go figure.

The Iron Man Wrestling Podcast – Episode 24

Welcome to the Iron Man Wrestling Podcast. Old Man Joey has been deleted this week (curse you, Brother Nero!). so The Fallen Angel and The Real Deal are left to entertain you for the hour.

1. News

There’s loads in the news this week. What did we talk about? Go ahead and download the podcast to find out!

2. NXT and Cruiserweight Classic roundup

The Real Deal runs through this week’s episodes of NXT and the final quarter final match in the Cruiserweight Classic.

3. Intercontinental Title Tournament

Remember this? We haven’t covered this tournament since episode 8 which we released back in May. If you need to catch up, go and listen to where we got up to, then come back for this. Done? Good.

4. Main Event Jobber: Hulk Hogan vs Triple H (Backlash 2002)

It wasn’t a great main event, let’s be honest. It’s much worse with almost 15 years of hindsight.

5. Top Five… Matt Hardy matches

The Real Deal runs through what he considers to be the five best Matt Hardy matches on the WWE Network. Do you have a favourite Matt Hardy match?

6. Fatally Flawed Way – Tag Teams

This week, Fallen Angel has to work out who would win in a match between Mosh/Thrasher; one of Los Conquistadors; one of the Body Donnas, and one of the Mean Street Posse.

7. Botch To Broadway: Backlash 2004

We wrap up the show with a review of the Backlash PPV from 2004. Was it a botch, or does it go the distance?

The Iron Man Show – Episode 23

Welcome friends, to this week’s episode of the Iron Man Show, a wrestling podcast. On this week’s episode, The Real Deal, The Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey discuss the following:

1. News

In this week’s news: Brock Lesnarl Mike Knox, Alberto del Rio, the PWI Top 500 wrestlers, Katie Lea, and the sad passing of Mr Fuji. Yokozuna number one! Mr Fuji number one!

2. Raw/Smackdown Recap

A review of the events from this week’s Raw and Smackdown.

3. Backlash preview

A quick look at the card for the Smackdown-only Backlash PPV on 11 September.

4. Cruiserweight Classic

This is where things get a bit weird. Remember that strange move Jack Gallagher performed on Akira Tozawa? The Fallen Angel and The Real Deal try to do that move on each other. It has to be heard.

5. NXT

This week’s NXT recap.

6. Overrated or Underrated – Mr Perfect

Was The Perfect One a legend who didn’t achieve what he should, or was he somebody pitched at the perfect level?

7. Fatally Flawed Way – Worst World Champions

This episode sees the worst world champions going head to head. The choices? David Arquette, Alberto del Rio, The Great Khali and, erm… Vince Russo.

8. What if…?

What if Stone Cold Steve Austin had not injured his neck in that match with Owen Hart? We dabble in an alt-history where WCW could have won the Monday Night Wars. Perish the thought.
